  • file server migration toolkit missing data problem


    first post, but long time user (troll?)

    here goes.

    I have a Windows 2000 fileserver (data) that is due to be decommissioned, so this weekend I ran the file server migration toolkit from microsoft on the new fileserver (data01)

    all appeared to be going well - there were some errors due to access denied messages for a few folders (HR and payroll) but all else seems well, reports from the fsmt say the migration was successfull. however....

    when I am on the new server, I go into the location of the migrated data to tweak the share information D:\data\migrated, and I can see the folder for the server name (data), but no subfolders e.g. (depts). if I look in my computer of the new server there is the right amount of Mb taken up on the free space list.

    I can browse to the share on client machines (\\data01\depts_data ) and all the files and folders appear to be there.

    my question is how can I see the subfolder of migrated so that I can tweak the share information on the server?

    thanks in advance for your help

    Go to Computer Management -> Shared Folders and make sure the shares are going where you think they're going.

      HI thanks for the reply.

      worked out what it did...

      basically it had set the folder depts as a hidden system folder for some reason. once I had unchecked hide protected system files, I could see it, then ran attrib -r-s-h from the command prompt and all was gravy!

      thanks for your help
